This card was inspired by a card I saw in the new Paper Craft's Holiday Cards & More issue that recently hit the shelves. I look forward to this issue each year and couldn't wait to get my hands on my own copy. As soon as I saw the card created by Kimberly Crawford on page 27 of the magazine, I knew I had to lift it and put my own spin on it. You can see Kimberly's card on her blog HERE.
Here is my take on the card:
There is that wonderful burlap which I love so much! The burlap is probably the first thing that drew me to the card. The textured paper I used for my card is from the Scholastic (X7159B) paper pack which looks great with burlap. Kimberly used felt for her poinsettia. I used the Artiste Cricut Cartridge (Z1790) to create mine. I cut three different sizes using the <Merry Christmas> Accent 1 key. I creased the center of each petal and bent it just a bit for more dimension In the center of the poinsettia are three small bling gems from the Boutique Assortment (1763). They are clear but I used my Cranberry Alcohol marker to give them color.
"Merry Christmas" is from the stamp set Christmas Love (D1492).
